Music for A Merman by #AliceRenaud (A Sea of Love Novel) #mermen #mermaidI’m delighted to welcome back Alice Renaud, author of Music For a Merman (Sea of Love, Book 2).

m- guest post

Do you read yourself and if so what is your favourite genre?

My first love was fantasy, and I still love it, but I also like historical and contemporary fiction. I also read non fiction, mainly history and mythology. I enjoyed writing about time travel and the 17th century in my short story for “Mystic Desire.” 

Do you write one book at a time or do you have several going at a time?
Sadly between working full time, looking after my family, church, and promoting existing books, I don’t have as much time to write as I would like. I only write one book at a time – and rather slowly! But I have lots of ideas in my head for future books. I’ll be thinking about the current work in progress, then my mind will wander into a different story. I enjoy dreaming up new characters and stories… Writing them down is the hard work!

If you could have been the author of any book ever written, which book would you choose?
“The Lord of the Rings,” by Tolkien. It’s the book that made me want to become an author. It pretty much defined modern fantasy, and it’s a wonderful page turner, with a marvelously detailed world, that is strange and yet familiar.

What are you currently reading?
“Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine, by Gail Honeyman. I’m enjoying it very much. It shows how small kindnesses can transform lives, but the dark past of the heroine stops it from becoming too twee or nicey-nicey. There is a sweet tentative romance in there too. The heroine’s voice is very distinctive, funny, never self-pitying. It’s a very well balanced book, and a great achievement. 

What’s the most difficult thing about writing characters from the opposite sex?

The sex scenes! Fortunately I have my fellow authors to help me, as well as my editor and publisher. Some of my author friends write erotic romance, their books are very helpful for me. Also I have a useful resource that my creative tutor recommended: “Romance, emotion and erotica – Writers’ phrase book,” by Jackson Dean Chase. When I’m stuck for inspiration, I turn to its steamy pages!

Music For a Merman
Sea of Love Book 2
by Alice Renaud
Genre: Fantasy Romance
Rob Regor knew that humans were trouble. All the shape-shifting mermen of
the Morvann Islands knew it. And human women were double trouble,
especially when they were lying on the road in front of a digger.”
Rob has a mission. Go to the mainland. Work as a policeman. Find out as
much as possible about the mainland humans. Report back to his
father, the head of the Regor Clan. It should be easy.
Until he has to arrest Charlie. Rob can’t fight his attraction to the
sexy eco-warrior, and it puts him on one hell of a collision course
with his family and his Clan. Will he break the rules – or break
her heart, and his?
**Only .99 cents!!**
A Merman’s Choice
Sea of Love Book 1
For centuries the shape-shifting mermen of the Morvann Islands have lived
incognito among humans. But one of them, Yann, has developed some bad
habits. Like rescuing humans, even when doing so risks revealing his
true nature. When he fishes Alex out of the sea, he doesn’t expect
her to reappear eight months later, and turn his life upside down by
asking him to be her guide.
Alex is determined to fulfil a promise to her dying grandmother, by
gathering pictures and stories of the Morvanns. But she soon
discovers that, on these remote Welsh islands, legends have a habit
of becoming true!
Over the course of a few days, Yann and Alex grow close. But some mermen
hate humans. Their hostility, and Yann’s secret, threaten to tear
the couple apart just as they are discovering that they are soul
mates. Can Yann overcome the obstacles in his path and make the right
choice?
I
was born and brought up in Brittany, Western France, my father was
French and my mother British (from Wales). I moved to London, UK, in
1997, where I now live with my husband and son. I work full time as a
compliance specialist in a pharmaceutical company. I have been
writing in my free time since I was 14. I got quite a few short
stories published in UK magazines, before moving to longer fiction. I
wrote three contemporary romance books, but didn’t find a publisher
for them. I then realized that mermen, sea witches and water demons
were a lot more fun than sheikhs and billionaires! My first two
paranormal romances did not find a publisher either, then I wrote A
Merman’s Choice, which was published in January 2019 by Black
Velvet Seductions. It is the first book in a fantasy romance trilogy
inspired by the landscapes and legends of Brittany and Wales. I love
reading and writing stories, and sharing them with anyone who’s
interested!

  1. I’m going to have to check out the Eleanor Oliphant book. Already read Music for a Merman as an ARC. Fantastic!
